Toyota aims for fix 
following failed recall

DETROIT — Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling about 780,000 crossovers and hybrid sedans in the United States for a second time to repair a suspension defect that was not properly fixed last year, a Toyota spokesman said Monday.

The Japanese automaker first recalled the 2006 through 2011 RAV4 crossover and the 2010 Lexus HS250 hybrid sedan in August, 2012, to prevent the rear suspension arm from wobbling, which could cause rust and lead to a crash.

But Toyota found that the nuts used to adjust the rear wheel alignment may not have been properly tightened, according to documents posted online by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
